A bit about Kyle

Kyle is a ‘Kiwi’ with a passion for adventure travel and storytelling. He grew up on a small sheep farm in the lower North Island but dreamed of life beyond Norsewood. After completing an adventure tourism course in Nelson, Kyle secured his first job; a white water raft guide on the Buller River. He now has almost 20 years experience working in the tourism industry. Working in the tourism industry is what sparked the idea of Kyle’s alter ego, Bare Kiwi, in 2009. To reduce the amount of disposable tourism literature that was being distributed, while helping travellers discover the real New Zealand, Kyle decided he would create short videos that featured him experiencing tourism activities. Unintentionally, Bare Kiwi is now recognised as a global influencer on the adventure travel scene​.
